Taster’s Review:

When I first opened the pouch of  Mountain Roasted Green Tea from Shan Valley, I wasn’t too sure what to expect.  I’ve tried many roasted Oolong teas, however, my experience with roasted green teas is much more limited.

But this tastes more like a roasted green Oolong than it does a typical green tea to me.  In the place of the usual or expected vegetative tones of a green tea, I taste a delicious nutty quality.

The texture of this tea is really nice – like velvet!  It tastes very smooth, and feels very smooth to the palate as I sip.  As the name suggests, it has a delicious roasty-toasty taste to it, with hints of smoke that mingle with distant floral notes.  It is sweet and nutty, and there are some creamy butter-like notes to the cup as well.

A really delicious, unexpected green tea.  I like it!
